Chicago Cubs Lineup: Willson Contreras Is Your DH

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs have won five games in a row and are looking for the second straight sweep. Here’s David Ross’ lineup for the final game at Wrigley Field before the trade deadline. Guard your hearts appropriately.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

  1. Rafael Ortega, CF
  2. Willson Contreras, DH
  3. Seiya Suzuki, RF
  4. Ian Happ, LF
  5. Nico Hoerner, SS
  6. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
  7. Yan Gomes, C
  8. Alfonso Rivas, 1B
  9. Chris Morel, 2B

SP: Keegan Thompson, RHP

The Cubs are rolling with a pretty standard lineup for Game 2 against the Pirates, with all the usual suspects at all their usual positions. Yes, Willson Contreras is in there for what is almost certainly his final game in a Cubs uniform at Wrigley Field, but he’s not behind the plate. This is going to be an emotional game.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (1:20 CT).
